Dear Capture 3D Community,
We want to thank you personally for working with us, and it is our privilege to have you in our Capture 3D network. Today, we want to connect with you about what you can expect from us during this time. Facing a pandemic is something new to all of us, so now, above all, we must strengthen our support as a community to get through this together...
April 8, 2019 - A new case study written with Desktop Metal has been published. Despite its young age, Desktop Metal is making waves in the 3D printing industry. The company was founded in October 2015 by an all-star team of 3D printing experts with a common goal—making metal 3D printing more accessible by tackling the challenges in this area, including cost, quality, speed and safety.... In order to inspect and verify 3D printed parts, Desktop Metal needed a metrology solution as advanced as its technology. And with a broad customer base, Desktop Metal needed to be able to measure parts from multiple disciplines across the manufacturing industry—including aerospace, medical, automotive, and more. In addition, 3D printing is often used to create complex shapes and geometries unattainable with traditional metal manufacturing methods, so Desktop Metal needed to be able to measure these kinds of parts accurately as well.
March 6, 2019 - A new case study with ADAC Automotive has been published. ADAC Automotive first opened its doors in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1975. Back then, the small company was known as ADAC Plastics. Today, ADAC Automotive is a tier-one automotive supplier that focuses on the production of vehicle entry systems, exterior and interior door handles, exterior trim and exterior mirrors for the global automotive market. In 2014, ADAC decided to explore 3D metrology systems - "[Adopting the ATOS 3D scanners] has been quite the shift... The 3D scanner has evolved from being a tool used to help in certain situations to being used every day.” The numbers prove it. In 2014, ADAC scanned 378 parts. In 2017, that number jumped to over 8,000 parts.
October 15, 2018 - A new case study with GE Appliances has been published that explains how the GEA team is redefining product development using cutting edge 3D metrology solutions with ATOS, TRITOP, and ScanBox to solve engineering challenges. “It was easy to make the business case to purchase the systems,” said Dave Leone, Director of Dimensional Control for GE Appliances. He noted that his team was instantly able to start driving improvements. Leone views the GOM systems as more than just a stand-in for the traditional CMM. He describes ATOS as a powerful engineering tool.
